The Montana World Trade Center at The University of Montana recently received a $298,814 grant to support its National Export Initiative Support Project, a private-public partnership intended to help Montana businesses increase exports of quality products and services to worldwide markets.

The grant was part of $618,814 awarded by the U.S. Commerce Department's Economic Development Administration to boost job-creating exports in Montana.

"Nothing is more important to the United States' and Montana's economic future than accelerated export growth," said Arnie Sherman, Montana World Trade Center executive director. "Led by small business, Montana's economy produces world-class products and services. We are gratified that the administration has validated what Montana has to contribute to the region's economic recovery and future vitality."
